Sur­vival test at Val­halla

Golf Digest (South Africa) - - Play Your Best -

In the 2000 PGA Cham­pi­onship at Val­halla Golf Club, Tiger Woods had a one-stroke lead go­ing into the last hole of a three­hole play­off against Bob May. That hole, the par-5 18th, is sim­i­lar to the generic de­sign shown here, with a split fair­way strad­dling a lake. Woods played well left off the tee, his ball car­oming down a cart­path and onto some hard­pan. He hit a con­ser­va­tive sec­ond shot into the left rough (of the left fair­way) and put his third into a bunker fronting the green. After a bril­liant bunker shot to two feet, Tiger tapped in for par and claimed his fifth ma­jor-cham­pi­onship vic­tory.
